Rising Star: Raffey Cassidy

Raffey in ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’!

Hello everyone, I have some very exciting news to share with you today: Raffey has booked a new feature film called “The Killing of a Sacred Deer“, which is currently filming! Raffey will be playing a character named Kim, we do not know any details about her character yet unfortunately. However, we do know that the film is going to be a psychological thriller, so it is a genre that Raffey has not done yet! I can’t wait to see the film, which is supposed to premiere in 2017.

The story follows a young man that needs to take revenge, a doctor that has to make a decision, and his family that must survive. A psychological thriller with supernatural elements.

Inspired by a Euripides tragedy, the story centers on Steven, a charismatic surgeon, and a teenage boy who seeks to integrate him into his broken family. When the boy’s actions become increasingly sinister, Steven’s ideal life starts to fall apart and he is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.

“Rust” – Full Short Film!

Today I am more than thrilled to finally share the full version of “Rust” with you! It’s a great short film in which Raffey plays a young girl named Georgie, who is living with her grandfather on an old farm. Raffey did a terrific job playing such a hot-tempered character and of course looks as stunning as always! I have embedded the film for you to watch below. A very special thank you goes to the director of the film, Brady Hood, who kindly gave us permission to share the film with you here on the website.

If you would like to share the film with other fans, DO NOT download and re-upload the film on sharing sites such as Youtube. Instead, please share the link to Vimeo or refer to our website. Thank you!

“Miranda’s Letter” – New Short Film!

If you follow our accounts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you may have already noticed that Raffey can be seen in a brand new short film called “Miranda’s Letter“, which was released yesterday! The film was inspired by Shakespeare’s play ‘The Tempest‘ and is a tale about mother-daughter relationships, or rather the lack thereof in Shakespeare’s work. Raffey plays the main character Miranda and does an incredible job bringing her character to life! If you haven’t seen the film yet, you can do so below:

Promotional stills for “Rust”!

I have finally found some time to upload a few promotional stills for the short film “Rust” to the site’s gallery! If you don’t know about this film yet, Raffey plays a young girl named Georgie who lives with her grandfather on a rural farm. Her character looks very serious in all of the stills, which makes the film seem very emotional! We may be able to share the film with you soon if the director grants us permission, so remember to check back regularly for new updates regarding the film and Raffey!

“The Heist Before Christmas”!

Back in 2013, Raffey filmed a feature film called “The Heist Before Christmas“. The film is about three children planning to rob a bank to pay for a school trip on Christmas Eve. The director of the film has recently uploaded a trailer for the film, which means that it might be getting a release later this year! I have embedded it for you to watch below. Congratulations to Raffey and everyone who is a part of this film!

Raffey as Anna Vatan in “Allied”?

It has been rumored that Raffey booked a new feature film called “Allied“, which started filming in March! The film is set to be released on 23 November 2016 and the story revolves around World War II. According to the website IMDb.com, Raffey’s character is named Anna Vatan which would make popular actor Brad Pitt her on-screen father! Here are some more details on the story:

1942. After falling in love with French agent Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard), during a dangerous mission in Casablanca, Max Vatan (Brad Pitt), a French-Canadian counter-intelligence agent, is notified that the woman he has married and had a baby with is likely a Nazi spy.

We will post an update regarding the film as soon as we hear anything new, so don’t forget to check back!
